Over the years I had hoped to get an editorial assignment to photograph Tegan & Sara but my fortunes took a different turn when my intern, musician-turned-photographer Daniel Silbert introduced me to Sara Quin at a show in New York. The first thing I said to her was that “The Con" was my most played song on iTunes. She took my fanboy confession well and we had a nice chat about New York, relationships and their upcoming album.
Halfway through touring that album (the fantastic Heartthrob) their management team commissioned me to shoot new press and merchandising photos, and I couldn’t have been more on-board. It was such a good time spending the day with the girls that it was a blessing we had a full agenda of shots to do, otherwise nothing would have gotten done.
"There is something so complicated about loving me and loving Tegan. Every girl I’ve ever dated has said that by dating one of us, you’re dating both of us, because we’re always together. We love each other in a way that most siblings don’t understand."
Tegan: we did take a little trip out of the hotel, Sara and I…uhmm. And we went and checked out Copenhagen where we had a day off […] As it’s pointed out in nearly every interview we do, uhmm…the two hundred and so days we spend together on the road isn’t enough really to keep our relationship strong. So…uhmm. So last night was…well, I think it was actually really good, uhmm…experience for us.(x)
